This petition was submitted by Jonathan Rhys Williams, having collected a total of 1,051 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

We're asking the Welsh Government to design a geographically-based Universal Basic Income (UBI) that includes children, the employed, the unemployed and pensioners, as well as care leavers.


This will allow the Welsh Government and the general public to understand how the policy would impact Wales if it were rolled out tomorrow.
